Inspired by a pair of hand-made shoes combined with the purpose to spread joy, Mitzi Rivas brought Livie & Luca’s first collection into the world in 2005. When her close friend, Amie Garcia, saw that first pair of shoes she fell in love and wanted to give them to her own children, and to others. As a teacher, Amie strove to make a difference in children’s lives and she knew through these beautiful healthy shoes, that purpose would continue.
Their mission at Livie & Luca has always been based in these values – to spread joy and to make a difference through the creation of comfortable and whimsical shoes, to do meaningful work in which our products positively affect the lives of others.
Passing along joy is how they practice their mission of sustainability, because we care about the long-term well being of their community. Children are near and dear to their hearts and most of their charitable giving focuses on making the world a little better for our upcoming generations. Spreading joy, growing community, making a difference – this is Livie & Luca.
